Great walking trails for all levels. Beautiful falls and challenging Jacob's ladder, but worth the view.

Upon recommendation from our hotel we went walking in Victoria park. Sporting and picnic areas lead to hiking trails. We hiked out to the reservoir and back past the waterfall. A nice way to end a driving day.
